West Long Branch, NJ.
are some suggestions to find his grave site:
You can Google "Glenwood Cemetery West Long Branch
New Jersey" - There is no numerical address but it
is easy to find. The cemetery is located at the intersection
of Route 36 and Monmouth Road.
Upon entering Glenwood Cemetery, make an immediate left
and make your way up the hill.
Just before you reach the top of the hill, you will see
three roads in front of you (a road that goes "straight",
a road that goes "straight and to the right",
and a road that makes a "hard right"
Take the "hard right"
On your left, you will see a set of marble steps, followed
by a second set of marble steps. Stop at the second set
Now, look to your right and you will see a large headstone
with the last name of "BENNETT" (see photo below)
Dr. William Duncan Silkworth's headstone can be seen in
the above photo: To the LEFT and BEHIND the large BENNETT
headstone are the backs of two headstones.
The one on the left is our beloved Doctor William Duncan
Silkworth, M.D., and on the right that of his beloved
wife, Antoinette B. Silkworth.
